What do we look for in LAC members?

Local Advisory Committees are made up of local people who represent a diverse range of community interests. We seek people who:

  • are leaders in their community, with the ability to communicate to a broad range of interest groups
  • want to use their experience to make their community safe and better prepared for emergencies
  • are well-connected and can engage with a range of networks and communities of interest to gather a wider perspective
  • have a good understanding of local risks and issues
  • have governance experience
  • are analytical and strategic thinkers.

Sounds like you? If you’re interested in becoming an LAC member, get in touch with the team at LACs@fireandemergency.nz or fill out the Expression of Interest form.
